Lakeia Murray, like many people, lost her job because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of Integrity through the Next50 program, Lakeia could get a job and regain stability in her life.
A friend referred Lakeia to Integrity’s Community Job Connection. After speaking with Mr. Walter, Integrity’s NET Instructor, Lakeia enrolled in the Next50 program the next day. Next50 provides formerly incarcerated individuals over 50 with hard skills training, soft skills training, job placement support, and more. “It helped me a great deal. And they constantly keep in contact with me to see how I’m doing as well, and I like that,” Lakeia said. “If you’re looking for employment, give Integrity a try.”
After participating in the Next50 program and getting soft skills training through NET, Lakeia has obtained gainful employment in warehouse logistics. It has helped Lakeia get back on track. “It put a lot of stability in my life because I didn’t have that. I got my responsibilities back and I got my income back, which gave me stability.”
